Someone I vaguely know on FB posted this. This is how insane people have got.

 

This is not a joke....

 

Now that I'm a second vaccine graduate, do you think it's worth writing it on the CV?
Would this give me an advantage over someone who only did the first vaccine, or got vaccinated in some alternative framework?

 

An employer responds:

 

Yes, this has given you the edge with us. We can offer you a post in a couple of months time conditional only on you remaining: alive, conscious and - as office space is limited - without large swellings or superfluous extra limbs. As we have just re-carpeted it would be also appreciated if you do not leave large quantities of unknown green ooze around.

I am thinking of leaving permanently to Costa Rica with my family in next few months. I read the list of 15 reasons Irish govt have for leaving country, noticed the bastards dont have emigrating up as a reason. Not saying I wont try

 

Sorry to hear that, but I can completely understand. Seems like this country is going absolutely nowhere fast and I fear for my family.

 

I don't have a a wife or children of my own so I'm planning to head off to Spain next week on my own. Masks outside there, 10pm curfew and everything shut at 6pm but it's a sad sign of the times that this seems like utopia compared to what's going on here.

 

Fuck knows if we'll ever be able to come back if they bring in this 2 week hotel shite and vaccination passports. Real rock and a hard place type stuff.

It's worse than that in Spain, they've sealed off the Communities, you can't drive, say from Catalonia into Aragon. They've Even sealed off entire cities such as Alicante, so you can't leave at the weekend (well, you can if you go out on a minor road, but you may be caught).

I hear Tenerife isnt too bad re mask wearing outside, only half complying and the police arent hassling anyone. In Ireland it seems more than half here wearing em outdoors and it isnt even mandatory. Dont know what mainland Spain is like

Yeah I know, I'm looking at Sevilla which is in Andalucia which is at the lowest level at the moment. There aren't many options sadly other than make a big jump to somewhere like Costa Rica like Owen's decided to do.

Right, I have a couple of friends over there and it very much depends where you are apparently. South isn't too bad north and central Spain getting screwed big time.

 

I've noticed that too about Ireland, use of masks seems to be going up if anything, nearly a year into this. Pretty bizarre stuff.

Do you have a job, or independent income? Unemployment in Spain has gone up 650,000, now at 3.9 million. Don't go there thinking you'll pick up a job like you will in the UK. The job market is nothing like the UK, sadly.

Yes I work online thankfully and should be sorted up until the summer, so all I need is a decent internet connection. Financially my plan is to save up invest as well as I can have the minimum in Fiat money and wait for the storm clouds to gather.

 

I partly feel like I should be staying here and standing my ground, but there seems to be very little will to resist in this country so I'm not even sure what I could get involved in other than postering/leafleting and talking to people I know. Feel like for my mental health I need a change of scenery but then there's the danger of being in a foreign country when potentially the shit hits the fan.

Good stuff. Another tip, if you rent a flat, be careful, many flats are poorly built and the noise from neighbours can be extreme, don't expect much help from anyone to stop it. If you can afford it rent a flat built after 2009 or a detached house.

I have a terraced house and I am selling up because of the noise from the neighbours children is too extreme. Constant banging and screaming. This lockdown is just driving me crazy. Feel like going outside and screaming at the top of my lungs.

What an absolute load of bollocks.

 

Deliberately so. They have the power to mock. They get off on it. I think they know that they can speak any lie they like, display any hypocrisy they choose and nobody can do a thing about it.

 

They remind me of serial killers that leave their victims in humiliating poses and taunt the police with notes and phone calls. Only, these serial killers running the scam know that the police, military, courts, most of the public, are cheering them on.

Thanks a lot, and yes I unfortunately learned this the hard way! Lived in Huelva for a year, we ended up in a flat where the pipes burst and we had no running water for a month. We somehow got blamed for it and ended up losing the deposit!
